And a Window appears displaying:

OpenSUSE :: The Packman Repository Not Refreshing?

Jan 18, 2011

I'm having a problem with the Packman repository lately. First, I added the Packman repo using a Germany mirror link. Everything worked fine until I decided to switch the repository URL to the standard Packman one [URL] instead of a mirror.Then I started getting an error while refreshing repositories:


Error refreshing service Packman Repository ( Parse error: repoindex.xml[1] Document is empty

Quite frustratingly, for some reason zypper has made the Packman repo invisible and I can't see it anywhere (not in Yast Software Repositories or in the /etc/zypp/repos.d folder. Yet, it still tries to use that repository when refreshing, and obviously gives me an error in the process. how to completely remove all traces of this Packman repo from my system so I can start anew? (aside from an OS reinstall?)

OpenSUSE :: Force System Updates To Use Packman Repository?

Sep 23, 2010

I was wondering on the updater service slowly over time installing packages overtop packman packages.

For example, some multimedia guides mention to switch all packages to a certain repository like packman. At some point afterwards system updates will overwrite these.

I don't fully understand how updates work, however, is it needed or possible to set a rule for which repos are used as a reference for system updates?

Jul 27, 2010

When I try to apply the latest updates on my 11.3 system, I get the following Warning. I think this is because I did the "switch system packages" to Packman after I installed it. What is the recommended solution?

OpenSUSE :: Update Repository Has Checksum Error

Feb 13, 2010

I have a problem. When I start Yast, and it tries to download the update repository, there is a checksum error. The problem is, that this error is always there, it occured about 2 weeks ago and never disappeared. When I change the update repository to a specific one, I chose a german one, there is still that checksum error. If I say yast I want to still use the repository with the error, there comes another checksum error, if i say i dont care about that one either, it says

"Download failed:./repodata/primary.xml.gz could not be retrieved from[] caught EOF from server"

I cannot download the timezone RPM(and other RPM's) from several repositories(I haven't found ANY that will allow me to DL the timezone RPM's and I have checked 8 so far!) This breaks the update as it will stall on any of the undownloadable(new word for O.E.D. undownloadable) RPM's

OpenSUSE Install :: Double Checking Value For Update Repository URI (11.3 Or 11.4)

Mar 30, 2011

This is probably not the best question i posted on a forum, but i want to make sure i got something right on the live-upgrade page (SDB:System upgrade - openSUSE)

It says: "Check if [URL] (replace 11.3 with your version)"

I have currently 11.3 installed and want to move to 11.4. Now when it says "replace 11.3 with your version" does that mean current or version that i am migrating to?

Worst thing is i have done this before (from 11.2 to 11.3, but am not sure how i interpreted it at that time)

OpenSUSE Install :: YaST Update From Highest Priority Repository?

May 4, 2010

YaST2 -> Package -> All Packages -> Update if Newer Available that YaST would install the most current in the highest priority repository. Given the example data below, I thought package A, version 01, which is currently installed from repository abc, would be updated to version 02 from repository xyz.

How do you get YaST to update packages from the highest priority repository?

Sample Data:
Repository: xyz package A Ver:02 priority:50
Repository: abc package A installed Ver:01 priority:99

OpenSUSE Install :: Unable To Find Active Update Repository For 10.3

Aug 12, 2010

I am trying to update four OpenSUSE 10.3 servers. This worked once on one server, but I have been unable to repeat that success. I use yast's Online Update to select repositories, but at the end of the repository refresh they keep coming back with 'No active update source is available. Exit Online Update now?' I get this error:
Download failed: File /repodata/repomod.xml not found on media: [URL]

It appears to connect to remote repositories, but always fails. Is it realistic for me to expect to update 10.3, or is it a lost cause? I am not ready to jump to 11 yet, but I am required to update them. I am a newb, so I am not clear on the process. Are package versions locked in place for specific versions of OpenSUSE? If so, how can I find out what the final versions were for 10.3 so that I can at least tell my auditors that they are as up-to-date as they can be?

Ubuntu :: VLC Repository Is Way Out Of Date / How To Update Repository

Jan 8, 2011

I've noticed that Synaptic shows VLC 1.0.6 as the latest version of VLC. Except this is not true and 1.0.6 is way out of date. Version 1.0.6 does not even have a REPEAT icon button for the control panel. But newer versions do. Running Windows I can download VLC version 1.1.5 and make use of a REPEAT icon.Is there a way to update the repository? Or a way to tell Ubuntu developers that the VLC repository is way out of date and needs updating? I'm running 10.04 LTS--I thought this was supposed to deliver longterm updates?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: 11.3 - No Packman 64 Bit Stuff

Oct 21, 2010

I have these supposed missing 64 bit libs for everything on my main computer. I keep getting the following type messages whilst trying to get things working on a fresh 11.3 install on my test box. All these 64 bit things were installed on it before I wiped it and did a fresh install. I got it when I installed the codecs for gstreamer/kaffeine as well but went ahead and installed. Where did the 64 bit stuff go? I even changed packman mirrors.

OpenSUSE Network :: Why No Firestarter In The Packman

Apr 22, 2011

this is in part a *****. The Yast2 firewall interface is inferior. Firestarter and Guarddog are much better - but they are not in the packman list of stuff you can install because you like it better. How many of you care to offer an opinion as to why these other firewall apps are NOT packaged for openSUSE installation?

I've just done a clean install of OS 11.2 x86_64, KDE 4.3.1, and got the following message from RPM while installing multimedia support files from Packman using zypper on the command line:

warning: /var/cache/zypp/packages/ Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 9a795806 Similar messages were coming up while installing other packages through Yast, and I'm wondering what the issue is. All of the messages were about the "key ID" at the end of the example line. (Everything is working so I'm not sure if this is a problem or not.)

OpenSUSE :: Deluge 1.3.0 - Request Packman To Package For 11.3?

Oct 2, 2010

I know the packman people don't pay attention to these forums. How do you request they update to Deluge 1.3.0 which is the current stable version for 11.3? Where do you go that they pay attention to?

I don't know how to package this myself so really don't need to be told how to do it.
